LG Optimus 3D Max clears the FCC – headed to AT&T

LG's looking to release another glasses-free 3D smartphone and while we've heard tons of names and leaks, it will officially be known as the LG Optimus 3D Max. We got our first official look at the new 3D phone at Mobile World Congress (linked to below) and now we are seeing it clear the FCC on its way to AT&T. Sadly it appears to only be rocking 3G and HSPA+ speeds, no 4G LTE here.

With names such as the Optimus 3D 2, the CX2, and 3D Cube we've seen our fair share of information about this phone. While it doesn't have any huge changes over the original Optimus 3D (aka LG Thrill 4G for AT&T) it does look like a pretty solid phone, especially if the 3D feature is of any interest to you.

The new 3D Max will be faster, thinner, and lighter than the original. While it had a dual-core processor the new 3D Max comes with a faster 1.2 GHz dual-core chip - although we aren't sure if that is a Qualcomm or another Texas Instruments OMAP 4. The phone still features a 4.3" screen with a low 480 x 800 resolution, but it does offer stereoscopic glasses-free 3D video and picture viewing, not to mention LG's own 3D UI and games tailored to use the 3D effects. According to the FCC filing it will be using AT&T's 3G and HSPA+ 4G speeds, with no mention of LTE so that wasn't good news, but things could change before a release date.

Are you interested in a 3D phone with dual 5 megapixel cameras? Or still just think it's a gimmick?

    Sure if you believe anything that AT&T & LG says about updating to 4.0 ICS like they did with the LG Thrill & Gingerbread I mean they were right on top of getting that update out for the LG Thrill. Announced back in July 2011 if I’m not mistaken yet didn’t finally come out till this past month. My friend bought the LG Thrill granted he didn’t have any complaints as far as how good the phone worked, but was lied to by the AT&T rep saying it was going to be updated to gingerbread within a couple of months. Well he was still waiting nearly 8 months later until he threatened to cancel his contract with AT&T once that happened they switched him to the Galaxy Sii. I think that only worked bcoz the guy who told him that still worked there & he confronted him about it to his manager. Said the Rep lied through his teeth swore up & down that the LG Thrill was getting updated in a month.

    Granted the Rep probably actually believed it would since the LG Optimus 3D had already been updated everywhere else. I honestly think that AT&T just like VZW knew that the LG thrill wasn’t doing to well so they held on to the update. At the last possible moment so people could upgrade after their year was up.

    I mean honestly now you expect people to believe that the Thrill was harder to update than the Optimus? Even though they’re almost totally identical? Come on AT&T LG…. I honestly hope & pray that people well not buy this device to teach AT&T & LG a lesson. People are crazy when it comes to OS updates we want the latest features & hate being lied to. My friend wasn’t the only person this happened to check LG’s forums regarding Gingerbread. You’ll see then. Now even though the thrill can certainly handle 4.0 ICS I seriously doubt AT&T & LG are going to update it. All the carriers are updating devices to ICS & they just finally got around to gingerbread. Ridiculous…

    My Thrill 4G has been a lot of fun, but was hoping it’s sequel had a higher resolution. Why caall it a 3d max if it doesn’t have a 3d camera improvement? I hope it can zoom in in 3d.
